Boston, Mass.-based EnerNOC (NASDAQ: ENOC) has a new chief financial officer.

On Tuesday, the energy "smartgrid" software maker announced that it has hired Neil Moses, until March the chief global strategy officer for Dunkin' Brands (NASDAQ: DNKN) and onetime CFO, as its new CFO.

We're thrilled to bring his expertise onto the EnerNOC team," enthused Healy.
